British designer Thomas Heatherwick was chosen to helm the project. "In a sense, we tried to be very idealistic and think 'what's the best thing that we really think should happen here?'

And in the studio, we've been interested in trying to break down the idea that there's a functional world and there's culture and they are two separate things," he said in the documentary.

"To us, how a place makes you feel is its function." Heatherwick added.
